WFC 2020 Statement of Equity
We at World Fantasy Convention 2020 are sensitive to the challenges ethnic minorities face in today’s environment. WFC2020 abhors the inequalities African Americans are confronted with in policing and other aspects of society, and we stand with them. Equity and inclusion are at the heart of our vision of diversity for our Virtual World Fantasy Convention 2020. We are committed to ensuring that all minorities are given equal opportunities to participate in all aspects of the online convention. We recognize that diversity in literature and art enriches the fantasy and horror genres, and we are here to embrace it.
Sponsored Memberships for
People of Color
One of our goals at World Fantasy Convention 2020 was to encourage participation in our virtual convention by a diverse membership, many of whom are using their craft to create literature and art that not only entertain but introduce fantasy enthusiasts to a wide range of cultures. Many WFC members felt the same and joined with us in taking steps toward encouraging people of color to participate in the virtual convention. We are pleased to have been able to sponsor more than thirty-five people of color to participate in this year's Virtual World Fantasy Convention!
Thank you to those who helped us sponsor a diverse and inclusive convention. And thanks especially to all who participated. Because of you, we were able to celebrate the many rich cultures and diverse peoples who contribute to the fantasy and horror genres.
